Since its release, there has been some discussion about novels that needed to be included, so Penguin is asking for votes for the new Ten Essential Classics. Included with the vote is an opportunity to win a tote bag filled with the amazing Penguin editions of the ten new novels.
I already cast my vote, but I figured it would be best to pass along the opportunity to you all!
And in case you were wondering, here are the ten titles I selected (I should point out that I only chose titles I have read. I felt that was fair. That might explain why a certain Bronte title is missing...and some from Tolstoy). And these are in no particular order:
- The Odyssey by Homer
- Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky
- Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman
- Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
- Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift
- Middlemarch by George Eliot
- Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton
- Le Morte D'Arthur by Thomas Malory
- Hamlet by William Shakespeare
- The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
Good luck if you enter!
